Amber of Resilience

Where is the light?

Last night I was interviewing another bereaved mother as part of my forthcoming book “Grieving Parents – Surviving Loss As A Couple”.

Cheryl Haggard, co-founder of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep shared with me how she started the charity which nowadays is represented in 40 countries world-wide and brings the gifts of photographic memory to bereaved parents.

I was amazed yet again how such a tragedy of loss can spark such an intense activity leading to so much good for others in the face of tragedy.

Looking back over my journey through the barren land of grief there were many times I was wondering whether I had any resilience at all.

Yet now, 2,5 years later I have finished the first draft of a book, which had been and still is an intense way of dealing with “everything grief”.

The amber of resilience is always there. The question is whether we give it air to breath.
